Pros

Good company with decent pay and benefits. Use to be a market leader in cell phones. When things were rolling along good it was a good place to work.

Cons

Decaying, bloated leadership. Maybe the Google takeover can turn it around. To much politics and waste leaving too many "chiefs" and not enough "indians" to do the work to produce good products.

    Pros

    wealth of knowledge, caring and resilient people.

    Cons

    Motorola was run down by poor management.

    Advice to Management

    it is hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground. Take a page out of Robert Galvin's life.

  2. Good company in tough market

    Pros

    Employees are top notch, hard working and focused on success. Compensation is good. Google accurately determined that portfolio was bloated - need to focus of the critical 20%.

    Cons

    A very tough, competitive industry. the Android operating system commoditizes everything, making it very difficult to develop and sustain a competitive advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the long term in mind.
